(Very) Short Films by Kevin Everson

Many of Kevin Everson's films are biographical or autobiographical, commenting indirectly on the black experience in Europe and America. Sportello Quattro (2002) shows people of color in the African section of Rome, with a montage of immigration papers being stamped that suggests a burgeoning African-Italian diaspora. A Week in the Hole (2001) follows a young man on the first day of his factory job; by the end of the shift he's already settled into a stultifying if strangely comforting routine. In the most affecting short, Imported (1999), a man remembers standing guard while his mother picks collard greens from their garden; like many of Everson's films, it features a richly layered sound track, with chirping crickets, droning locusts, and swishing lawn sprinklers. The total running time is approximately 70 minutes.
